Peillon is a fortified village, perched like a eagle nest at a top of a cliff. A part of the town has been classified as a national historic monument site.
Peillon’s oldest houses date back to the XVIIth century. The church at the top of the village is of baroque influence.

The village’s treasure is the chapel of the « White Penitents » whose frescos were painted by Giovanni Canavesio in 1495. Close to it, is a funny bar, decored with funny vintage dwarfs.
